“My adolescent daughter and I live in an alley in this fantastic old city. I have been living here for more than 27 years and I’ll probably never leave! We love the little ‘village’ we live in. Everything is nearby and there’s a committed community.
Until the nineties this neighbourhood had drug addicts and taxi riots in the streets. Nowadays we have a different type of junkie: tourists who behave like loose cannons. The former junkies behaved better! But maybe you can get used to it. In the heart of the city people almost fall into the canals, that’s how busy it is. That is a pity for the tourists. I don’t know if the ‘We Live Here’ posters really help, but at least it is a fun project.”Back to overview
